Stopped on our way back from The Annual Cheese Rolling event in Gloucester, as the two nearest pubs to where we had parked were large chain pubs, and we wanted to eat in a nice independent country pub, I saw the sign off the main road, and thought we'd struck gold when we got to this quaint Pub set on...

Good points: friendly locals and bar lady. Scampi and chips. Less good: place needs a bloody good clean and new carpet and upholstery. All a bit sticky. Will return in summer to sit outside as the location is truly lovely. I expect this place comes alive on a lovely day.

Stopped here for lunch by chance on our way to Cheltenham so can't comment on rooms. We had a pleasant welcome but the food we had was uninteresting and definitely overpriced (and we're used to London prices). We had one portion of chicken and leek pie which was tasty but small accompanied by a small bowl of chips and a... More

When my brother who lives in the the Far East came to visit us he asked us to find a Pub by a river. I am delighted to say we found The Fox Inn. This is a real find in a beautiful river location complete with swan and ducks and a view to relax beside plus a chilled glass of... More

I visit the Fox annually (and usually more than once!) I've got to say it's the perfect get away with it's idyllic setting. The staff and locals are always welcoming and helpful with recommendations of what you can do or where to visit/walk. The menu has an good variety of choice, including fish, pub classics and then locally sourced produce... More

Stayed for 1 night after deciding not to stay a second due to the poor experience. Arrived after checking in time and had to wait in the bar as our room was missing the extra bed for our son. Had a drink in the bar which is quaint but definitely in need of some tlc with broken windows, flaking ceilings... More

Lovely location by the shallow river with tables right on the edge! Lots of tables under cover outside as well as by the river and in the garden. Stopped for a cuppa mid-afternoon and was served a lovely pot of tea on a tray for only £2.50. Excellent value.

I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your brief time with us. A spot of tea by the River Windrush sounds lovely and something I think everyone should do more often! I hope that you'll be able to return and sample a meal from our local, seasonal and provenance sourced menu in the sun...if it sticks about! More

Stayed one night with my wife and another couple as part of a short cycling tour of the Cotswolds. The good bits:They accommodated our bikes in a locked outbuilding/store which was good, and all the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. The not so good bits: the whole buiilding is shabby and a refurb is well overdue. Very little maintainence... More

Visited for lunch on Bank Holiday monday. Nice looking pub in a lovely setting but unfortunately the food left a lot to be desired! On arrival the staff were friendly and there were plenty of available tables inside. I opted for the roast beef and my husband the duck. We had quite a long wait and when the waiter eventually...

We were staying in a small cottage (Jasmine Cottage via Rural Retreats) about half a mile down the road from The Fox Inn and decided to go there one night for dinner and are really glad we did! The setting is lovely, with a huge beer garden and we had a nice drink outside before heading in to eat. We... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. I am delighted to hear that you think we are the definition of a country pub - it is what we're aiming for! I'm glad you enjoyed our food, you are correct, our specials change daily and are as locally sourced as we can make them! We... More
